The 255-mm (10") diameter integrated dual-axis rotary table with 150-degree tilt and 5 arcsecond accuracy enhances the machine’s flexibility and high precision machining capability. The ability to machine complex shapes, undercuts and difficult angles in a single setup reduces tooling cost and labor time, resulting in lower cost per part in addition to maintaining parts conformity throughout production runs. The machining center is equipped with a 48-tool carousel-type automatic tool changer and features random access, bidirectional indexing and 4.6-second chip-to-chip change time.

The standard 33.5-hp (25-kW) 12,000-rpm directly-coupled spindle offers long life, high metal removal rates and the ability to run at high spindle speeds for long periods of time because of the grease replenishment system, the company says.
